Griffiths returns as interim CEO at N J league
HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. (12/17/12)--The New Jersey Credit Union League (NJCUL) has named former Iowa Credit Union League CEO Tom Griffiths to serve as interim CEO while the NJCUL board conducts a national search to find a permanent replacement for the departing Paul Gentile.

Griffiths served as the league's interim CEO for six months in 2007, prior to Gentile's hiring (Daily Exchange Dec. 14).

"Tom's long history of success and innovation as the Iowa CU League CEO gives us extreme confidence that he can keep us on the right path while the search is conducted," said NJCUL Chairman Lou Vetere.

Gentile will depart the league at the end of the year to join the Credit Union National Association as executive vice president.

NJCUL's Search Committee has also announced the hiring of O'Rourke & Associates as its search firm.

The league is on much firmer footing than it was five years ago during its last CEO search, Vetere said. Members have benefited from a number of aggressive advocacy efforts, such as the "Banking You Can Trust" consumer advocacy campaign, which is entering its fifth year. NJCUL also led a long grassroots campaign for the passage of municipal deposit legislation, which was signed into law by Gov. Chris Christie last year.
